    I had no idea 2 weeks before the wedding is ideal. Some friends of mine did theirs 2 months before the wedding.....good to know.

      Lol.  My family is a pretty selfish bunch which I can usually ignore but since this is my wedding, it is just that much more difficult to ignore it.  I am getting excited.  We went to a florist today to look at flowers as online pictures just were not helping us make a decision.  I think we found some flowers that we really like!

      Your wedding is soooooo soon! You must be so ridiculously excited!

        You should do it when its easiest for  you. The wedding police won't come after you if you find it easier to do it further in advance =D

          I agree - it is when it is most convenient for you.  I am having a family bridal shower after the wedding!

              Ok, I just have to vent for a sec.  My family isn't going to Mexico in February for our wedding so they want me to drop everything and plan and focus solely on our May 5th AHR.  My girlfriend is planning my Bachelorette party but keeps asking me what she should plan and everyone keeps RSVPing to me rather than my girlfriend.  I feel like I have to make every darn decision and this is getting really old.  To top it off a girlfriend from out of town wants to bring her husband to the bachelorette party.  I am sorry but has everyone taken stupid and selfish pills????

                Bridal shower/bachelorette party was yesterday.  My friends are AWESOME!  We had brunch and played games.  My friends gave me advice in envelopes for milestones in our marriage.  Something I will always cherish.  Afterward we went out for salsa dance lessons so we have some moves for Mexico!  Hope all of your showers/bachelorette parties are as fun and memorable as mine was!

                    Yes, I'm second that I'm glad it went well.  My family is Mexican and I"m having a hard time trying to combine their traditions with those I grew up with my friends so these post help!  But thanks for the wedding police reminder.

                      We are having the bachelorette party in Mexico a couple of days before the wedding. We will be going to the adventure park and then drinking/dancing that nite. Should make for a much more casual event. And no shower as etiquette says that only women who are invited to wedding should come to shower, so really, what's the point, IMO?
